“Real Great Italian Food”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

My wife and I were staying at the Marriott in St. Kitts for two weeks and enjoyed it. We never had a bad meal in St. Kitts nor in Nevis. We did have memorable meals though out. We went to CIAO twice and enjoyed both experiences. Dario,one of the owners, gave us a short cooking lesson, which we will use in our own creations. Ilde, the other owner, treated all the guests as family. Both very attentive to their customers and ensured their staff were on top of everything. To begin our meal we had Tuna Carpaccio which was an experience in its self. My wife had Red Snapper with a rich tomato sauce and me I had Green Pappardelle with Lobster - delicious.

“Excellent Italian Food!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We were here on vacation staying at the Marriott down the street. Ciao was recommended by some friends staying there. It was FANTASTIC! Great bread, pasta and wine! I had the Penne with Sausage and it was excellent as was the Gnocchi that my friend had. The service was probably the best we had seen while visiting St. Kitts. Food was served piping hot and the owner was visiting with us all of the time. Great experience! Thank you!

“real Italian”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Ciao was a wonderful dining experience. It is as close to real Italian food as you can get. The ingredients were fresh and the meals were delicious, which are made to order so do not go if you are in a rush. Pastas taste homemade. The lobster ravioli was wonderful, as was the grilled vegetable appetizer. All 9 in our party (there were 3 children with us) were very happy with our meals, and had everything from grilled fish to spaghetti and meatballs. The owner will adapt most recipes to your taste, eliminating an ingredient if you would like. Ciao is an easy walk from the Marriott.
I will wide finitely go back next visit, probably more than once.
I wish they would move to Aruba, where I still haven't found

“Felt like family”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Staying at Marriott and Ciao was recommened. Not disappointed. The owner could not have been nicer. Made us feel like family. Attentive to the children. All had different dishes and all very good. Fresh pasta, yum. My husband's 72nd birthday. He was served tiramisu with a candle and spoons for all. Service was typical island service. To quote a native, "we hurry slow". Relax...enjoy your vacation!

“Authentic Italian Food”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We were visiting the Marriott at St Kitts and walked down to Ciao. The food was absolutely wonderful. We all ordered different meals. Each one was delicious! The ravioli, lasagna and chicken Alfredo were our favorites!
